is confined in the citadel of Aire. I make no
doubt Sir Sidney will explain my matters to his
friends, and render me justice. I enclose a letter
from him.

TO H.  SWINBURNE,  ESQ.

Portsmouth, July 26th, 1798.

MY DEAR SIR,On my arrival here I find the
annexed letter from Lord Grenville, which I lose
no time in transmitting to you. If there is any
step you wish me to take to procure a satisfac-
tory explanation from the other department, I beg
you will command me.

I beg you will be kind enough to tell me
what I am in your debt for Spanish books and
disbursements to John M'Cann, &c., in order that
I may pay the same wherever you may direct.

Accept my heartfelt acknowledgments for all
the trouble you were so good as to take on my
account, and believe me,

My dear Sir,
Your faithful, humble servant,

W, SIDNEY SMITH.
